This is the season to be jolly and if you are anything like us and have been procrastinating and putting off buying your Christmas prezzies, then rest assured and read on. Below, we are recommending two proudly South-African fashion design brands that stock the most beautiful pieces and goods.
Whether you are shopping for an athletic junkie, a retro enthusiast or an authentic accessory lover, we have got you covered and you are bound to find something that they will love. Who knows, you might even find something that fancies your interest. No judgement here, Trendees, we are big believers in buying Christmas gifts for yourself ;)!
1. Move Pretty:
Move Pretty is a young athletics apparel company and they are based in Stellenbosch. From their brightly coloured leggings to their admirable values, we are in love with everything about them! Why should you support this unapologetic-ally awesome brand?
When you shop at Move Pretty you are officially a proud supporter of women empowerment and we salute you. Move Pretty aims to inspire, uplift and empower both the women who construct the pieces and the women who wears them. They believe in supporting South-African women by only employing local creatives and their goal is to pay fair wages and rates. Furthermore, the quality and durability of their garments are truly outstanding and designed to withstand all the demands that an on-the-go fitness go-getter will place on it.
Our favourite is their #BELEAVE collection with subtle feminine ruffles, power-mesh insets and bows for details. The navy blue, grey and dusty pink colours of this collection looks so stylish together in the natural leaf inspired prints and graphics. Visit their website here to find your next beloved athletic legging, T-shirt or elastic tank.
2. SKOONMA Clothing:
These adorable handmade shirts and dresses are simply to die for. SKOONMA was started by South-African beauty and actress, Leandi du Randt Bosch. As the story goes, she inherited a box of old vintage patterns for garments from her mother and instantly fell in love with the retro look of it and so SKOONMA was born. The clothes, which each has a cute nickname of its own, come in fun quirky colours and patterns. They also design for toddles, young girls and women. Head on over to their website to order the perfect gift now (because shipping will be concluded on the 17th of December). They also have pretty 2019 day planners.
